  • Welcome to Champions Online, where the roles are made up and the aggro doesn't matter. Whose Tank is it Anyway.
  • If you find the time/energy for it, I would adore it if ya'll did a CO Lair endurance rush. Of course, this is Neverwinter focused, so fat chance of that happening! Something to consider. :P 'til then, hooray raising money for sick kids!
  • You're actually looking pretty golden. Your Avoidance could be higher, but that's still a complete 39.6% mitigation when you successfully dodge so it isn't all that bad. Offense's damage bonus hits a massive diminishing return wall, as does Defense later on down the line. You're looking solid, even if you avoidance is a…
  • I added in Str in the stat spread to get some Knock Resist and some extra benefits from the Seconday SS Spec Trees. Really, it's just another personal preference thing.
  • You should start out with Heroic gear first, imho. Personally, I always go for a 'balance'. Heroic Gloves of Crit Strike R5 Dex R5 Ego Critstrike gem Heroic Breastplate of Avoidance R5 Dex R5 Str Dodge gem Heroic Helmet of Utility R5 Ego R5 Str Cost redux OR cooldown redux, depending on which one you want more. Three pure…
  • It's all fun and games until someone posts a picture of a man's unmentionable.
  • smoochan, how 2 win at Club Carpeese?!?!?!
  • Necrons are wusses. My Dark Heresy character managed to roundhouse kick one to the ground and then everyone else started beating it up so hard it had no time to regenerate. Now, if it were a big group of Necrons we would have been screwed. @Trailturtle Suffer not the catgirl to live. ... bolt pistol lookalike pistol skin…
  • SPEHSS MAHREENS! WE ARE THE EMPRAH'S FURY! Truth is, you can make a pretty convincing "Space Marine" with the Soldier AT already depending on what guns you use and how much you're willing to invest into the Z-Store.
  • Actually... There is a NES game out there called Cocoron which has a pretty neat character customization system, even if the options were very out there. It's really neat and Mega Manish! If CO were to have an 8-bit version, that's the first place I'd point them to get inspiration.…
  • Smackwell takes the cake, devours it whole whilst running and slam dunks the plate that it was on to the tune of Space Jam. 10/10. The PvP player number is... accurate...
  • This is a jab because you didn't take a jab at them. :I Anyway, ummm... well, I don't recall the exact number, but we generally have around 1000 people running around CO at a given time?
  • I'm going to have to show up so I can show off how elite I am to Cyberlord. Mess with the best, die like the rest. B)
  • Hmmmm... Well, I'd love to see this happen, but the full consequences would be pretty hard to pull off. Say Defender winds up biting it, brutally killed at the hands of Dr. Destroyer. - Replace every occurrence of Defender within the game with another Champion. - Add in new dialogue mourning Defender's death. - Add in…
  • Good guide, would tease the CC community by saying something mean but I'll refrain since this is sticky material.
  • I haven't been able to pop on to test yet, but do me a big favor and please don't make the laser sword passive form look obnoxious. It should have subtle (WotW) or nonexistant FX (like Quarry, Targeting Computer, Night Warrior) because I really don't want to crackle/glow with QUANTUM POWERRRR while smacking things with a…
  • I actually got my two Freeform slots for free from the FF slot grab bag event. Yes, it feels good. It feels really good to have a freeform character and slot available I can fall back on when I want to stop subbing. Of course, all I invested into the slots were time, so my opinion is moot.
  • Definitely working as intended. By automatically kicking people out, the PvP queues remain inactive and unpopular, therefore making sure PvP doesn't become popular again! If PvP becomes popular again, people start raging about OP powers, combinations and legacy devices, thus prompting the developers to waste valuable hours…
  • Let's do some quick math on the prices of vehicle weapons. At the current exchange rate, rounding down to 200 Q per Zen, one Mark 2 weapon (at 140,000 Q) costs 700 Zen. You would need to cap your Questionite refine limit 17 and a half times in order to afford a Mark 2 weapon if you went the pure grind route. Half that if…
  • Be confident in your costuming abilities but for the love of god don't get cocky. Smackwell's got it right. You can have the most well designed, well thought out character and lose, but if you show up and leave your character and concept at the door and just make something crazy, wacky, wild, an interesting twist on the…
  • I think this would be a good opportunity to toss Single Blade and Laser Sword some maintained melee AOE like 100 Hands. Rapid slashes or stabs or something. Causes Bleed or Particle Burn after a half maintain!
  • This was hardly SA. We didn't have a guy saying "if the CO devs had a gun this wouldn't have happened" that spiraled down into gun control debates yet! No, I am not going to be the first to say it.
  • Bought them because I wanted them and I want less lockbox stuff and more direct-to-Z-Store stuff. More bang for your buck wouldn't hurt, though.
  • ... yeah, the bugs are kinda absurd and it really is a smart choice to have one veteran to CO around, but apparently that's not how Cryptic North's operating. At least they're learning? Fatal Err0r's first episode is pretty good, and some costume material bugs have gotten fixed. At least it ain't shut down!
  • I would advise against opening lockboxes before you're level 40, by the way. (i also advise against opening them period, but that's besides the point) You might get the super-rare-lucky-you gear! Which is very valuable. It's called Legion Gear. Upon opening the box that contains it (you get a box out of the lockbox, go…
  • Way back when GC had his own active chat channel, he did say that his intention was to make PvP not worth grinding... of course, this was in response to everyone grinding at PvP for the awesome purples and awesome power replacers. Now we've got two pieces of PvP-focused gear that isn't all that great... and, HOW…
  • Yeah, Eruption is dumb. Yeah, some people have wasted time, effort and money getting 5 of them. You know what? It's a dumb device and shouldn't have even been brought back in its current state.
  • Yeah, the soundtrack in CO is actually a pretty big letdown... the Snake Gulch theme is the closest the game's music ever comes to being catchy. Otherwise, we've just got ourselves a bunch of generic superhero game "epic" stuff. This is a good song in a comic book game. A Silent Hill Akira Yamaoka inspiration would have…
  • I personally use Force for 'water' effects, but I still hate that it's not real water! My complaints: 1. Lockboxes suck, especially since they're the only way we get new things to buy anymore. I miss when we could expect to see costume sets, Archetypes, hideouts and Become devices (oftentimes DECENT ones at that) and I…
  • *speeds over to Mentella and punches her out, steals her AF* Take out the telepath? Check. Steal her Iris Irregular action figure? Check. Still, though, congratulations. :P I dream of having my own one day!
  • If you're on a five man team, it will load the Nemesis of who's been on the team the longest. Just a fun fact. :3
  • It just isn't the same... QaQ Once you do it in the Club Caprice lounge, by the fountain, YOU NEVER GO BACK. Not even a hot tub can do it for ya anymore. Believe me, I've seen marriages ruined by this phenomenon. Of course, it's not like the unhappy couple doesn't have a whole harem of demonvampirewolves to fall back on.
  • /e clap *forums explode* ... :I Still, timely fixes are good. If they come with bonus emotes that everyone's been requesting that'd be rad too, but I'm not expectin' 'em.
  • I stared at the screen for a good minute before I went... ".... OOOOOOOOOOOOOH. Ha!"

  • These food analogies are worse than some of the cooking in Hell's Kitchen. It's like sitting down at a restaurant, finding a burger and it's really really delicious, and then someone starts throwing the burgers at people and it turns out the burgers are lethal explosive burgers when thrown, so they're replaced with burgers…
  • Actually, Hunter's Instinct doesn't scale on Int (at least it didn't last time I checked) but even so, it + Concentration + Int secondary = efficient. http://co-forum.perfectworld.com/showpost.php?p=2148151&postcount=4 If you're having trouble with energy, refer to the gear section. Statting in some Rec on the side isn't a…
  • Oh yeah, Gravitar Boots are still weird metal-latex texture only. Would love to see it in proper cloth, leather and metal too. Still, it's good that Throwing Blades is pending... only ten minutes using it now and I already miss being able to tap to shoot it.
  • I have a new Hero Game idea too! It's called Despair! It's every hero for themselves when they're locked in a mansion (with infinite living utilities such as electricity, food, water, comfy rooms) with only themselves and an evil Monofoxbat urging them on... to do what, you may ask? TO KILL! The only way to leave the…
  • CO is my favorite game, even for all of its flaws. Also, this forum is populated by, like... 40 people at max. We just kinda ineffectually shake our collective fists at Cryptic and at each other.
  • As a novice programmer (Hey, I can make small, useless console applications in C! Please don't type %s in any of the input prompts, you might break something!) I can appreciate that keeping your code clean and clearly commented is more important than actually MAKING something. Knowing where something broke is extremely…
  • Oh yeah. Sekimen, CO is indeed "Why Bother? The Game", and things do change, and for the most part I'm happy with the changes that are happening. It's just that one power I really really liked using is going to be rendered useless due to a duct-tape fix (or it may have been the only fix they could feasibly do? we'll never…
  • Having to hold the button for .42 seconds on top of its activation time is slower than other AoEs, not to mention the potential for misfires. I'm sticking with what I want from the power, and I'd be more than happy to take a damage decrease across the board rather than having the off-chance to do 0 damage if my finger…
  • It might be usable but it's still a 'why bother?' power compared to Ricochet Throw now, and I don't recall ever hearing or seeing that Throwing Blades was broken before people started using the exploit. If I'm going to be forced to charge something at 50ft when I have another option that can be charged for better damage at…
  • OK, since we're in the suggestions box now... THROWING BLADES 50% charge time requirement needs to go bye-bye. It kills the power's versatility and pigeonholes it into a glorified AoE Shadow Strike or a gimpy, slow AoE attack. Add in a proper activation time, .67 seconds seems like the standard. Try that. Reduce overall…
  • Power intentions and power applications differ, and if it was only intended to basically be an AoE ranged Shadow Strike stand-in, I personally think it would have been pigeonholed into that limited role to begin with. As it stands, the Nighthawk Gadgets set only had one easy to use ranged AoE and that was Throwing Blades.…
  • Crosspost from the Playtest thread.
  • Exactly. Give it a quick internal cooldown so its tap functionality remains but it can't be script-tossed, give it a proper activation time, do something that doesn't break the basic functionality of a reliable AoE that fires on tap. Lower the damage too! I'd be fine with a 20/25% decrease! Anything but forcing a dumb…
  • I'm retconning out of Throwing Blades immediately since this ruins what I used it for, which was hopping into 50 ft range and tapspamming it to take down enemies without the exploit. I picked it up before any of this exploit mess ever happened. So, yeah... everything else is just fine and dandy, but this ruined a useful,…
  • I soloed the mission with a Level 40 Soldier armed with Heroic gear and a level 40 Invincible, similarly geared, with the help of a Freeform archer-sorcery support hybrid. The Good: This looks really really cool! The visuals are different than anything else you'll see in CO! It's permanent? Really? Yesssssss! Decent length…
  • Don't forget to bring ATs, too! If time allows I'll be testing with my Soldier and my Specialist, maybe my Invincible as well.
